Seerveld has arranged his carefully crafted psalm translations into thematic clusters under nine progressive headings. He follows half of his translations with singable psalm versifications fashioned to various melodies. In an introduction and an afterword Seerveld sets the biblical psalms in historical context, highlights the rough and tender tenor of God's psalms, and offers concrete suggestions for helping these psalms come alive in our private and public worship today.
The accompanying audio CD features oral readings by Seerveld himself of many of the printed psalm translations, interspersed with select versification melodies skillfully played by solo recorder or saxophone.
An extraordinary book-and-CD combination, Voicing God's Psalms will help many worship leaders and music directors in preparing liturgies and will inspire many believers in their personal devotions.
